Call for Abstracts

ICSBOC2020 seeks abstracts regarding maintenance and operation of major cable supported bridges. We invite the submission of abstracts for consideration by the Steering Committee and Technical Review Panel.

ICSBOC will be accepting abstracts for both oral (paper) and poster presentations.

The Steering Committee and Technical Review Panel will be responsible for the approval of paper and poster topics from the submitted abstracts, as well as the final acceptance of the papers. Oral presentations for accepted papers will be grouped into sessions related to specified topics. Poster presentations will be featured at a dedicated time in the conference schedule.

Please note: Abstracts for all accepted papers may be posted online.

Guidelines for Poster Presentations

Presenters are expected to be present at their posters during the dedicated poster session times, to be determined closer to the conference. The exact location of each poster presentation will be listed in the final program.

  • Posters must be in portrait orientation (vertical) and not exceed 1.14 metres (45 inches) wide by 1.80 metres (71 inches) tall. Posters in landscape orientation (horizontal) will not fit on the poster boards being used at the conference.
  • Poster boards are cloth covered. Use Velcro tabs (preferred) or push pins to attach your poster to the board. Velcro tabs and push pins will be available on-site.
  • You are responsible for set-up and take down of your own poster. Unclaimed posters are not the responsibility of the conference organizers, planner, or conference centre staff and will be disposed following the conference. You will be notified of the set up and tear down times closer to the conference.
